Good old uncle Sanguine by FoolishLittleMortal Good old uncle Sanguine by FoolishLittleMortal
Everyones favourite 'uncle'! :B
Sanguine, the Daedric Lord of debauchery.

Couldn't scan the painting so had to take a photo. Impossible to not get reflective light on it. I also had to adjust the colours in Photoshop. This is as close as I can get it to the original. I'll try to make a better photo sometime in the daylight with an other camera. I'll update the pic if I manage to get a better photo of it.

With that said, here it finally is! :D

Not bad for someone who never really paints traditionally and only just recently started drawing more realistic style faces.
Well... at least I'm quite proud of this. :)

I've been working on this for over a week now. I kept messing around with it and I had to change things all the time that bothered me.
Here's the WIP

I only had refs of this guy looking very serious. But I wanted my Sanguine to smile. He is a fun-loving demon after all. 8D
He's one of my favourite characters in Skyrim. :love:

Time: Pffft I don't know the hours, but worked on it for over a week.
Materials: Acrylic paint on canvas (no idea what kind of canvas though. Something cheap. xD)

The Elder Scrolls and Sanguine belong to Bethesda.
Painting is all mine. C:

Happy Halloween! 8D

I like Uncle Sanguine a lot more than Creepy Uncle Crassius.

I thought about making a daedra-worshiping character in Skyrim and using console hacks to make Sanguine her follower. I'm sure it would be glorious fun!:happybounce:

I'm going to his party!! 
Your hand at detail is incredible! And with acrylic no less!! Bravo! =D
Just had to sympathize with you on you photography issues. :'( though I don't notice it in your piece, I have such DGRTJHDFJIFSXWFHN frustration with getting good pics of my works! Gotta own a bloody photo lab or something... :P
Anyhow- this= pure awesome. *toothily grins right back at Uncle*

You know I think there's a glitch in the game where you can see him again I actually went back to the place where the entrance to the misty groove is and I found sanguine there fighting bandits plus I like this

I know. He'll be back in Morvunskar and if the mages have respawned he'll be fighting them.

That grin speaks of impending mischief & debauchery! :heart:

Yep! :dummy:

If my poor Dovahkiin saw this, she'd probably run a mile like "By the Divines! Why must this happen to me?!" :XD:

Mischief is her style. Debauchery is not.

I love it!
Are you at any chance willing to sell this? :O

(also yay my first comment, as you're the reason that I made a DA account :D)
